How to install a Ridge Vent

Installing a ridge vent is common practice when installing a Roof. It is important that the vent has an equal intake of cool, fresh air and output of warm, moist air. This ensures that your attic is getting the right amount of ventilation. Once you’ve confirmed air will be moving properly, follow these steps to install a metal ridge vent:

  1. Remove all ridge cap shingles from your roof ridge followed by the cutting on each side of the ridge into the sheathing.
  2. Unroll and or fasten the ridge vent to the roof deck.
  3. Cut the end of the vent so it fits tightly against the end of the ridge vents.
  4. Make sure to line up the fastened ridge vents with the slot cut along the roof ridge.
  5. Once the ridge vent is attached, place straps over the joints and use nails to hold them in place.
  6. Install ridge caps over the ridge vent per manufacturer required instructions.
